In brief: Less than 10%

The question is about survival, which is usually measured as percentage of surviving (not failed) kidneys transplanted after a time period, usually one year. Kidney transplant survival after one year is routinely in the 90% range.
It depends on the type of kidney transplant (living donor vs deceased donor) the quality of the donor kidney and the health of the transplant recipient.
